Young Women Rising: Could Empowering Girls Transform the World?

Season 1 Episode 1

Around the world, local organizations are finding creative ways to empower young women. There’s a growing consensus that educating and supporting young women creates a positive ripple effect and lifts up entire countries. In the Democratic Republic of Congo, "Hero Women Rising" combines social media and grassroots activism to overcome poverty, war and patriarchal traditions. In Dallas, Texas, where the high school pregnancy rate is 50 percent above the U.S. average, a filmmaking program run by NTARUPT empowers girls to educate each other on reproductive choices.
